RAID in Web Hosting
The SSD drives which our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform uses for storage function in RAID-Z. This kind of RAID is developed to work with the ZFS file system that runs on the platform and it employs the so-called parity disk - a specific drive where information stored on the other drives is duplicated with an extra bit added to it. If one of the disks fails, your Internet sites will continue working from the other ones and after we replace the malfunctioning one, the information which will be copied on it will be recovered from what is stored on the other drives along with the data from the parity disk. This is performed so as to be able to recalculate the bits of every file adequately and to confirm the integrity of the info duplicated on the new drive. This is one more level of security for the content you upload to your web hosting account in addition to the ZFS file system which analyzes a special digital fingerprint for every single file on all drives in real time.
